Troy Miller passed for three touchdowns on Friday night to lead host Del Sol High to a 32-13 victory against Valley in the Sunrise Regional quarterfinals.

Del Sol, which is predominantly a running team, received more than 200 yards passing from its junior quarterback.

“We were pretty balanced tonight, which we need to be getting deeper into the playoffs,” Del Sol coach Preston Goroff said.

Miller, who led the Dragons to touchdowns on all but one of their first half possessions, started the scoring with a 15-yard touchdown pass to Evan Weinstock in the first quarter.

Miller also threw a scoring strike to Dezerick Reed, who added a pair of touchdown runs.

Valley’s Garic Wharton, an Arizona-commit, had two touchdowns runs, including breaking free for a 99-yard run in the third quarter.

“He blew right past us,” Goroff said.

Del Sol (10-1) will host Liberty in next week’s Sunrise Regional semifinals. Liberty handed the Dragons their lone loss earlier in the season, a 24-21 setback.
